WHISKEY DREAMS – Basil Hayden’s Manhattan

I was craving a Manhattan, and decided to try and blend something a little different, which ended up in the best Manhattan I’ve ever had.

The base is Basil Hayden’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon, mixed with sweet vermouth, Dom Benedictine, and garnished with a Bada Bing Cherry.

This combo results in just the perfect level of sweetness that blends and swirls with Basil Hayden’s woody, spice, and oaky notes. This Manhattan scored a 95/100, putting it at the very top of the Manhattan scale.

Recipe:

  • 4 ounces Basil Hayden’s
  • 1 ounce Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 ounce Dom Benedictine
  • 2 Bada Bing Cherries
